Re: Affording a powerful battery

If you want to use a 1.7KWh battery with a 20KW motor, you will have to take into account discharge rates. I havent' looked at the specs of the cells you mentionned, but I'd be surprised if they can handle that much for long. You have to take that into account in your decision, it's possible to do a...

Re: Bladez XTR SE Build

Nice upgrades. Now time to get a more powerful controller. Make sure your battery can handle that though.

That being said, it's a real pain to read with all that punctuation. I bet your keyboard "." key must be pretty worn out.

Re: The Easy way to mount a tire to a hub motor

Yeah a ratchet strap is even better if you have one around. Basically anything that can compress the tire circumference and hold the tire tight to the rim would work. I never managed to make the starter fluid technique work either. Every time I tried it ended up in a slow burning fire and me panicki...

Re: The Easy way to mount a tire to a hub motor

I've used this technique a few times and it works very well. Much easier than the traditional method. Haven't thought of the plank with a hole trick, might make things a bit easier I should try it next time. An other useful trick to know: Sometimes it can be hard to inflate the tire the first time. ...

Is there any specific reason why you'd like to use a dual motor setup?

If not, maybe you can have a look at what the awesome/insane Youtuber Colin Furze just did:

Re: Upgrade the Jonway MSG-D 1000W Electric Scooter Battery

I have one more question. I decided to make a 72 volt system (24 cells Lifepo4), but my motor has not hall sensors. That's weird, I haven't seen any of those motors not having sensors. Are you really sure? Can you check again if they are not coming out somewhere from the motor axle? If your motor r...

Re: Upgrade the Jonway MSG-D 1000W Electric Scooter Battery

some progress. I'm thinking of installing foam between the cells. Do I need it? I would not. It would make the battery bigger, limit the thermal transferts and also allow the cells to expand and puff, which is something you don't want them to do. What I've seen on most pouch packs I've opened was t...

Re: Different voltage from input to output of the BMS

Well as it turned out the battery had no problem at all, it was just discharged a bit too much. I first took the BMS off and opened the battery to get readings directly from each tab. They were all pretty consistent (3.28V) except for one group which was quite a bit lower than the other ones (2.7V)....

Re: Drivetrain options for threewheeler - goldenmotor, motenenergy, batteries oh my

Ok, give me enough time for it to sink in -- 500x245x160mm ~= 42x16x25 cm, it is the same pack you're talking about. And you're right, $1k shipped for a 72V 40Ah seems like quite a good deal, especially when it can deliver around 120 A continuous. Compared to the same price for a 48V 30Ah battery w...

Re: Drivetrain options for threewheeler - goldenmotor, motenenergy, batteries oh my

I'm new to this, so hopefully someone can chime in as to whether this is obvious or not. If I get the A123 pack off ebay, it doesn't have a BMS. So I would need to get a BMS myself and add it -- several places in the forum the ANT bluetooth BMS (especially 300A version) is recommended, which I thin...

Re: Different voltage from input to output of the BMS

To test without removing coatings, then make sure your probes are very sharp and pointy. Use a bit of heatshrink or insulation stripped from wires, etc., to cover the entire probe tip all teh way to the point, but not beyond it. Push the tip into the coating till it reaches the soldered pad. Even i...

I haven't measured all the cells individually yet, because, as you can see, they are pretty hard to access to. Not really--all the cells are accessible via the BMS balancing/sense wires (and the main + - pack wires for the end cells, if there arent' separate sense wires for that). Yep, That's what ...

Very interesting build, this gearbox setup is sweet. I just worry about the way you attached your sprocket, I don't think this will last. At some point the bolts will probably just snap.
